Butter prices hit all time highs in the UK, they are even warning of a butter shortage by Christmas 2017. Additionally with the heat wave in the western USA, disposing of dead cattle is overwhelming the disposal facilities. As dead cows sit in the heat, methane from internal rot is causing cows to explode. Back in May 2017 disposal facilities were overwhelmed by 100 million tons of rotted onions due to excessive snowfalls and collapsed storage facilities. We as a planet haven't even gotten into low-mid losses, yet the facilities to dispose of infectious ag and cattle pathogens are paralyzed. We need to quickly rethink these "procedures" moving forward into the grand solar minimum. What happens when we experience high losses?
